Kindness Is Magic

Hello World,


First and foremost … Thank you Cobs @thecobweboriumemporium for the beautiful tag… It’s definitely getting hung up in the bus…๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค— And yes your little sweet note made me cry..๐Ÿ˜ข happy tears though ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿค—  

I feel like the universe is smiling down on me cause this has been an incredible 2 days…1st getting Cobs beautiful tag and then the wonderful gifts from a new friend on Instagram, then winning a contest ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ … I’m totally on cloud nine and so very very grateful for the kindness I’ve received ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค— 

SOOOOOOO as most of you all know, I’ve been converting a bus so I can travel all over the country and spread my son’s ashes at all the places we wanted to go see… It’s been just a few months since I got the bus (with the help of so many of you) and my healing journey is right around the corner.

I’ve slowly been getting pantry things I’ll need for my journey and making lists of things that will be road worthy, tiny fridge worthy, good quality, healthy and storable.

 I love veggies, fruits, smoothies and salads and although I cannot say that I’m vegan because I cannot give up cheese, eggs and seafood (not yet anyway) I was talking to my friend Dana (a vegan smoothie bowl Queen) and had just asked her to make me a list of protein powders and other things like chia seeds etc that would help me stay healthy on the road. 

And then this happened..๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค—. 

An amazing company Kura Nutrition read my story and sent me a bunch of their plant based protein powders, a really cool drink shaker maker ๐Ÿค—, 6 really yummy looking recipes and the sweetest handwritten note ever ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’— so I had to do this shout-out cause I am beyond grateful… I’ll totally be posting pics of the yummy things I’ll make with them on the road ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’— thank you @kuranutrition so very much…๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—


I won the coolest double bike rack from a contest that a couple of van living guys that I follow on Instagram @therollingvan  had. I’m overly excited and can’t thank you enough too๐Ÿค— talk about cool…

It will look so good on the bus ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค— 

Guess it’s time to get in shape lol lol hey maybe that’s what the universe is telling me… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

Time to get in shape Ricci…. hahaha ๐Ÿ˜‚

I’m in shock ๐Ÿ˜ฎ and NO I’M NOT AN AFFILIATE for either and I rarely do shout-outs… 

I just had to share my excitement and my gratitude… especially to Cobs and Kura Nutrition because those gifts came from the heart, pure kindness and well.. there are no words only love for them both ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Please check out her blog @thecobweboriumemporium and Kura Nutritions shop online with their great healthy products and The Rolling Van on Instagram or YouTube and their amazing adventures traveling the country ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

I may sound like an advertisement but oh well cause I’m so grateful and excited too..

Thank you so much my friends so very very very grateful ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค— 
Kindness is AMAZING

Hello World, My name is Ricci pronounced like Ricky, yet it's been mispronounced all my life and at my age I answer to just about anything ๐Ÿ˜Š I am a writer, a writer of motivational light. A writer about everyday life. My story is one of hope, inspiration & motivation... One that begins over a half a century ago, when life was much different than it is today. We all have our own story, for each of us is unique. Some have had it easy, some have had it hard. Yet I believe that each one of our stories can bring a bit of light to others and I hope mine will bring light to some of you. My goal is to tell my story with hope that others can see that no matter what happens throughout your life... You CAN prevail, even when it feels like you can't. For I know it's possible, even after the loss of a child, which to me is the most devastating life event ever... I know for I have and am prevailing each and every day. It isn't easy and there are days where I feel I cannot go on yet always know that You are NOT alone... Everything is possible when you believe. Everything is possible when you believe in YOU โคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโคโค

  1. Aww, I’m thrilled to pieces that the tag arrived safely with you Ricci. Because we’re now in the ‘Silly Season’ I was convinced that it would be damaged or lost in the post. I’m so happy to read that it arrived safe and sound, and I’m tickled pink that you like it.

    When you decide that the moment is right. When the ‘soon’ becomes the ‘NOW’ … we will all be with your on your journey. Encouraging, shouting, willing you one and praying for you. It’s a big step to take and I can fully understand your hesitations about when you should actually go … but I think you’re doing exactly what you should be doing by taking a moment to gather yourself together. Perhaps spend Christmas at home, among the people you know and who love you… so that you aren’t missing from their lives on that one special day. And then … after Christmas, when the time is right FOR YOU – then you’ll be able to take that one step which feels like the biggest one.

    It’s not. You’ve already taken the biggest step. The next step is simply the first step to a journey of love, discovery, maybe tears (probably tears), saying goodbye with so much love that it will hurt, but also saying ‘hello’ to the new future you are about to take on.

    The journey to your future all begins with that first step. You take it when YOU decide to begin. Don’t be pushed into taking it because you feel like you might be letting someone down. There is no pressure from anywhere, because your friends want only the best for you and wish only the best for you.

    Tickled pink that the tag arrived safely. I can now stop fretting over it. lol

    1. I knew I was gonna lose it when you responded Cobs… ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ Yet they are definitely happy and grateful tears.

      I love love love the tag and will take a pic as soon as I find the right spot for it. Every time I look at it I smile huge cause I think of squidges ๐Ÿค— and immediately giggle… The bus doesn’t have a rearview mirror on the windshield or I would totally hang it there… Hmmmmm in fact I’m gonna ask my son to figure that out cause I would love to have it right where I’ll see it every time I get in the driver’s seat cause it will totally remind me of your beautiful words and give me strength and light whenever I need it in my journey. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜„ Yep that’s exactly where it needs to be ๐Ÿ˜

      I was actually surprised it arrived so quickly as well because of the “Silly Season” especially cause where I live is a tiny Town with a one man post office that always messes up stuff haha yet so glad it got here in perfect condition too.. I am so very happy and grateful… ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—

      Now for everything that you said in your comment … Thank you so much for your support… There are a few people in my life that have unfortunately gone the “why haven’t you left yet?” Route and yet to explain to them that I must do it when it feels right they just don’t understand so thank you for that because you get it and that means the world to me… I have let go of the letting people down guilt cause as you said…I must do it when it feels right… This is not a little going on a holiday trip.. it’s so much more than that in so many ways.. life, letting go, healing, saying good-bye.. So many levels and there will be tears I know.. yet I’m fully aware of that and it’s ok.. I’m just so glad that I have friends like YOU coming with me.. you may not be here physically yet you are with me in spirit and in my heart without any doubt in my mind and for that I am so very grateful.. ok I’ve gotta stop before I cry a river hahaha… THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH…I LOVE IT AND I LOVE YOU… XOXOXO Love and huge squidges to you and for you every moment of every day.. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜
